The following dashboards are included in the Management Pack for F5 BIG-IP:

F5 BIG-IP Overview Dashboards:

  • F5 BIG-IP Health Overview displays heatmaps depicting the overall health of F5 BIG-IP resources being monitored (systems, virtual servers, applications, pools, nodes, etc.).

  • F5 BIG-IP World Overview displays scoreboards and health-related heatmaps for your entire F5 BIG-IP environment, includingmajor components, pool components, and LTM components.

  • F5 BIG-IP Health Investigation displays health status badges for the resources in your F5 BIG-IP environment. To drill down further and investigate the health details for a particular resource, click on its badge from the BIG-IP Environment widget to populate its top alerts, status, performance sparklines, and key performance metric graphs.
